The Fab Faux With The Hogshead Horns & The Creme Tangerine Strings Perform Abbey Road And A Hard Day's Night In Their Entireties - The Space at Westbury
May 18, 2019 - Westbury

With a commitment to the accurate reproduction of The Beatles' repertoire, The Fab Faux treat the seminal music with unwavering respect, and are known for their painstaking recreations of the songs (with emphasis on the later works never performed live by the Beatles). Far beyond a cover band, they play the music of The Beatles so impeccably that one must experience it to believe it. Imagine hearing complex material like "Strawberry Fields Forever" or "I Am the Walrus" performed in complete part-perfect renditions; or such harmony-driven songs as "Because", "Nowhere Man", and "Paperback Writer", reproduced not only note-for-note, but with extra vocalists to achieve a double-tracked effect. The musical virtuosity of The Fab Faux – in actuality five of the hardest working musicians in NYC – completely up-ends the concept of a Beatles tribute band. Far beyond being extended sets of cover versions, their astounding shows are an inspired re-discovery of the Beatles' musical magic, as The Fab Faux tackles the group's most demanding material live onstage in a way that has to be experienced to be believed. Calling them, "the greatest Beatles cover band – without the wigs," Rolling Stone... (read more)

Ember Choral Concert: A Second Simplicity - St. John's in the Village Church
May 18, 2019 - New York

A return to simplicity – and the possibility of sharing its joyful wisdom as we age – is the focus of the Ember ensemble concert titled A Second Simplicity that will take place on Saturday, May 18th in NYC.

A Second Simplicity will feature the world premiere of Matt Van Brink’s composition "With its Wonders", on a text by Rabindranath Tagore, that speaks to the discovery that, as we age, “new melodies break forth... new country is revealed with its wonders.” Among the other compositions will be Ysaÿe Barnwell’s "Wanting Memories", David Moore’s "Remembrance", Sydney Guillaume’s "Le Dernier Voyage" and Eric Nelson’s "When Memory Fades". Ember’s composer in residence, Cheryl B. Engelhardt, will premiere her new composition,"Taurus". The concert is framed by portions of Stephen Sondheim’s "Into the Woods".

One of these women is Eleanor Roosevelt, who is about to become the First Lady of the United States. The other is Lorena Hickok (or Hick, as everyone calls her), a feisty journalist assigned to introduce Eleanor Roosevelt to the world.  Fantastically told through metaphysical poetry, fragments of newspaper accounts, intimate letters, and Depression-era ballads, the opera retells these women's stories as a classic love triangle - between E...

Rothko Chapel, Little Match Girl Passion, and an Adam Roberts Premiere: Secular Sacred Music - YIVO at the Center for Jewish History
May 19, 2019 - New York

Rothko Chapel, a non-denominational, broadly ecumenical center, was designed by Jewish abstract expressionist artist Mark Rothko (born Markus Yakovlevich Rothkowitz). Originally conceived of as a Catholic chapel, the deeply spiritual, but abstract work of Rothko was quickly felt to be more fitting for a place of holiness open to all religions, belonging to none. It was this work of Rothko’s that inspired Morton Feldman’s epic masterwork Rothko Chapel (1971). A work of great abstraction and spiritual depth, Rothko Chapel begins in what Feldman describes a "synagoguey type of way” and ends with what Feldman called a “quasi-Hebraic” melody in the Viola. In 2007 David Lang’s Little Match Girl Passion, self-consciously attempted to secularize and universalize the Passion story, by setting a Hans Christian Anderson fable in the manner of a J. S. Bach Passion. In both of these works abstraction, and universalization, are Jewish responses to being in dialogue with artistic representations of Christian spirituality. Join us for a performance of these two choral masterworks featuring the young artists of the OS Ensemble, led by Raquel Acevedo-Klein, including the performance of a new s... (read more)

Debashish Bhattacharya - DROM
May 19, 2019 - New York

DROM, HARRICE MILLER and ASIAN ARTS AGENCY PRESENT Debashish Bhattacharya Debashish will be accompanied by virtuoso Indian tabla player Samir Chatterjee. "Indian ragas took on a flirtatious shimmer in the hands of Debashish Bhattacharya, who infused them with strains of Flamenco and Hawaiian music and performed them on a new breed of Indian slide guitar of his own devising. The result was a heady mix of languid Polynesian sounds caffeinated by the rhythmic fireworks of the tabla of Subhasis Bhattacharya, Debashish's brother." - NY Times "This Calcutta-based slide guitarist is a perennial NPR Music favorite and Tiny Desk alumnus. He's meshed his youthful fascination with Hawaiian steel guitar and love of the blues with the architecture and vocabulary of Hindustani (North Indian) classical music. The result is intoxicating" - NPR
